Kyrene Akimel A-al Middle School
2720 E. Liberty Lane
Kyrene Akimel A-al Middle School has been part of the Ahwatukee area since 1992, offering each of their Rattlers an enjoyable schooling experience from the morning bell to the ending bell.
According to its website, the name of the school is derived from the Akimel O’odham meaning, “Children of the River.”
The school houses just fewer than 1,100 students.
Principal Mike Deignan said the school offers different sport activities and a learning lab before school starts, which offers students time before school to seek extra help with work completion or tutoring.
“That keeps our students involved with a lot of things, between the sports and the learning lab,” Deignan said.
